Clinic Day 1
We arrived at the clinic to be greeted with an opening ceremony including live music and dancers. Once we got started we quickly realized our services were greatly appreciated. Our patients move thru the stations of the clinic and complete the process in a room that TriStar calls the “disco.” It did become quite the party as hundreds of workers selected their eyewear and sunglasses. It is a good thing that we have a team of volunteers from the local college to help with translation. We also have support from Global Motion and Essilor, the frame and lens manufacturers that are providing the eyewear for the clinic. Thanks to their efforts and our amazing team, we were able see almost 700 employees on our first day.
